Abstract

A motile, short rod-shaped and yellow-pigmented bacterium, designated strain CW5, was isolated from a water-cooling system at Gwangyang, Republic of Korea. Cells were Gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic and catalase- and oxidase-positive. The major fatty acids were C 7 (64.7 %) and C (14.1 %). The DNA G+C content was 63.9 mol%. A phylogenetic tree based on 16S rRNA gene sequence comparison showed that strain CW5 clustered within the lineage and is closely related to the type strains of (98.5 % sequence similarity) and (95.7 %). The phenotypic characteristics and DNA–DNA hybridization data indicate that strain CW5 could be distinguished from the phylogenetic relatives and . On the basis of the evidence presented in this study, strain CW5 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CW5 (=KCTC 12893 =JCM 14755).
